    I am going to D-con this year. Anyone else? Anything going on in L.A. around that time?

    I plan on going again this year. As far as lining up goes, I have heard that people start to line up at 6am. It just depends on what you are trying to score though. If it's some micro run that a lot of people are gonna try and get, I would probably suggest you line up pretty early.

    Re: Designer Con..

    Now that you said 6 am, people will show up at 4. Wait, now that I've said 4...

    It was all about Paul Kaiju releases last year, with a sprinkling of Bwana Spoons. This year I hope for the same, with the addition of Grody Shogun. Mentioning that should raise the hype level of this thread, right?

    Re: Designer Con..

    I can bring a fire barrel. I would love a boss. I don't think I can make it there at 6a.m. that's crazy. I wish the booths would do it like Mori and release them slowly throughout the event. I am driving 24 hours from Oklahoma getting to our hotel in L.A. Friday around noon. I am not sure what time I will make it to d-con.

    Re: Designer Con..

    Yeah, 24hr straight drive. It is worth it. Me and my girl take shifts driving. This will be our 3rd drive to L.A. this year. Oklahoma is very boring. It's a fun trip. On the way back we stay a night in New Mexico at her Aunt's house. We will be in L.A. for five days. I can't wait. I am a little worried about going through Flagstaff now that it is colder. I hope it will be O.K. Driving is cheaper than flying and renting a car. Plus we can come and go when we want. We don't have to worry about our stuff being damaged during transport. Last time I picked up a 5'x6' un stretched canvas from a artist that I like. I didn't have to worry about shipping or any damage. It is a long haul but it's fun.

    Awesome! At least you have a diving partner. I had to drive from Portland, OR back down to LA in one day solo. That was hell for me. Any ideas on what we should do post D-con? Go somewhere for food and drinks? Any ideas?

    No guarantee, but I'm shooting to have a Cadaver Kid at the TAG booth, I think they should be done in time, but I don't want to promise it, so crunched I'm not even painting them, asking the factory to paint and ship directly to TAG.
